The Hermitage offers an eclectic array of things to see, including an over-the-top recreation of an English country house (no interior surface goes undecorated); a sometimes random, but always fascinating array of art reflecting Mrs. Sloane's personal tastes and willingness to take advantage of political ups and downs to buy art at fire sale prices; a couple of galleries showing work by contemporary artists; nice gardens with a great river view; and efforts to restore the wetlands along the property's riverfront. All of this is supplemented by the fascinating tale of the Sloane family and its role in local Norfolk history. All in all, a great place to spend a couple of hours.
